World-Class Workflow Automations

Enhance Adobe® InDesign® with the Power of TruEdit Toolbox™

 


The TruEdit Toolbox is the perfect add-on for users of Adobe InDesign, InCopy® and InDesign CC® that want to save time with smart automations. By offering auto-output, hyperlinking, and tagging solutions, the Toolbox adds value for those who want to maximize InDesign and InCopy content creation.

Hyperlinking and Tagging

TruEdit Toolbox empowers the InDesign user to create the foundation to make hyperlink tags and other kinds of structure. Instead of spending time and energy inserting tags again and again, the Toolbox creates the XML framework so the tags can be made automatically. This is just one example of the Toolbox’s ability to take manual InDesign processes and script them to be automated.

Auto Output

The Toolbox is designed to save time, as it provides InDesign with output tools that automate the export and printing of the active document. Users can run the output tools manually or build the outputs as automated tasks into TruEdit and other workflows. InDesign documents can be generated as a variety of different file types, including JPEG and PDF.

Other Key Features

  • Create InDesign output with watermarks
  • Add and remove user names to inline notes
  • Create inline notes as PDFs
  • Print InDesign documents using a preset
  • Sequence and chain together other TruEdit Toolbox tools and execute them in order
  • Run styles as tags to give designers the flexibility to go beyond style definitions

Features

TruEdit Toolbox provides a fresh approach to using InDesign and InCopy. The Toolbox cuts down time spent on important tasks by providing helpful tagging, output and automations designed to get you to your final goal as quickly as possible.
